0 degees ROAD A-Head Stem

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Sir,

0 degree is actually a 90 degree stem with no rise or drop. Thus when installed on a bike it will have a rise as headtubes are not 90 degrees. Is this what you want?

Or do you want a stem parallel to top tube. In this case there are many more choices as this is the normal stem made by most companies.

Let me know. Just wanted to clarify as many people get mistaken.

Yes, this is exactly what I want: a 0 deg or 90 deg and yes, I know it is gonna point upwards.

Thanks

Sir,

Not many companies offer a true 90 degree

-ITM Big One has one that comes close
-Control TEch offers one
-Interloc also offer the new road stem that is close

There are others out these but quickly doing some search this is what I offer.

Basicly you are looking for a stem with a rise.

Also just to inform. Use extra spacers on headset before cutting the fork. Try it out a while. Then when you are happy cut the fork atthe final lenght.

There are many people that tae to shops or cut themselves right away and then regret it as they wanted it higher. Too late then. Please do not make this mistake.

Anything else post. Take care.

When I searched for a 90° stem, I found that most are made for MTB, so they're not the lightest, but there's plenty light.

Easton EA90 as mentioned above, and also Thomson X4, HOPE XC and Salsa Moto-Ace all come in a 90° version. And there's the new Rotor SX, which comes close at 88.5°.

There used to be a profile design stem that came in that rise, but it isn't made anymore. Also, IIRC, old Deda Zero (not Zero 100) stems were 90°, but they're unsafe for carbon stirrer tubes.
